Well, after finishing two books this year so far, I'm on a mini writing vacation. And boy does it feel good. When it comes to writing, I think breaks are good. Our brains are the muscle and they need a recharging break too. Mine in particular is sapped. When I wrote the Red Crossroads I was so much in the zone I wrote until my hands got tired. I stayed up writing and editing until 1 am on most days. For me, writing is consuming both mentally and physically. So when I get done I take a break and let the poor Muse recover in the Bahamas with some other writer. =)
Soon enough, the ideas will start flowing again and I'll be itching to write. But for now I'll take my virtual fruity drink, pull up a seat next to my imaginary beach and lounge until the next book wave takes me away.
